Betty was always full of life and had a huge heart. She took care of many people throughout her life which became her extended family, including these special individuals, Joan Rome, Judy Maddix and Kim Walls. Betty’s house was a gathering place for extended family. She loved to cook, and her favorite times of the year were Thanksgiving and Easter when everyone would come and visit. Everyone would fight over who got to eat her famous apple cobbler. She enjoyed canning and would spend hours on her back porch.

She worked 25 years at the Maiden Form and was a devoted housewife to Hayward. She loved her family and dedicated her life to her grandchildren. Betty was an active member of their lives and always a staple in all their life events. She loved her “grandfurchildren”, Mia, Stella, Sage, and Izzy. She enjoyed watching them run and play in the yard and took any chance she had to get kissed from them.

When she was young, Betty and Hank were active golfers and loved the outdoors. They spent much of their time camping and boating at Stonewall Jackson Lake. Betty was a hardworking and independent woman that would light up a room. Her favorite pass time recently was to sit in her swing and watch over the neighborhood.
